New day greetings, kingdom family!!! I am thankful in life that my world was forever “ROCKED.” By that, I am saying that I am sooo thankful to have THE ROCK JESUS as the foundation of my life, for it is in that secure standing of faith that has made the divine difference in my life in being able to stand in the storms of life!!! Everybody has them at times and while I see my life as a blessed life, it is because of my faith in Jesus that enables me to have that peace and that calm in this world!!! Jesus had that, too!!! His secret to “ROCKING ON POWERFULLY” is this:
It was after a time of prayer with His Father that Jesus was given what He needed to walk across the waves to be with His disciples in the boat they were in together. Jesus knew who His leader was in life and the source thru whom He was to receive His guidance!!! Even though our Father puts leaders into our individual lives to guide us as He did with the disciples, He is always our supreme overseer beyond anyone else!!! It is important that we always understand that ladder of divine authority in our lives so we do not get confused as to who we listen to to guide us!!! The written Word, the Bible says this about Jesus’ circumstances:
“After He had dismissed them (the crowd) He went up on a mountainside by Himself to pray. Later that night, He was there alone, and the boat (with His disciples in it) was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.”
Oh when we dismiss life for the priority to plug into the power of prayer to our Father, the “Rock of our Salvation,” there is going to be His provision to us for what we need to carry out His purpose for us, too, dear ones!!! There is no distance in time of life Jesus can’t make up for when we let life move on without us while we take time to pray!!! There are no waves of contrary to the divine life in any of our lives that Jesus can’t cross over to get into the boat with us and bring the calm in the midst of a storm just as He did for His disciples many years ago!!! Jesus’ Words to His He loved in their fear when they could not recognize Him in the midst of their circumstances were these:
“Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday as He will be tomorrow!!! He is always faithful and trustworthy to bring divine life victory to us as His kids of faith!!! When the enemy of life stirs up winds contrary to God’s people, Jesus is going to work good thru the circumstances for us as we keep the faith in Him even when we don’t at first recognize Him in the midst of it!!! His promise:
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
I love the example of the power of faith in trying circumstances that this music video here shares – it fills me with inspiration to pray and keep the faith in “the Rock of our Salvation” JESUS in the challenging times of life, for He is able!!!
Let us make it a priority in life to carve out time for prayer as Jesus did because it brings the divine life – heaven to earth for us of faith!!! Even 5 minutes can bring “high-five” kingdom victory!!! What is Father placing upon your heart to pray about today???
“…in all these things, we overwhelmingly conquer thru Him who loved us.”
HOOORAAAHHH!!! LET’S GO INTO LIFE PRAYERFULLY POWERFULLY WITH HEAVEN WITH US, SAINTS OF FAITH!!! Proud of you for doing so!!! Praying with ya!!!
New day greetings, saints whom I love!!!!!!! Woohoo! I’m a gal all excited about life today! How about you? It is a great opportunity to make a difference wherever we are!!!!!!!
It begins with a healthy mindset of these thoughts in mind:
- See yourself as our Father sees you – qualified for life! Yeppers! You are! He has equipped you and me just right to make a difference. Identify your strengths, gifts, talents, skills and how you can make a difference with what you have been divinely given!
- Find a place for using what you have been given. Have a plan and follow it, along the way helping the people around ya, not stepping on them to get somewhere.
- Tackle the challenges that come along and let’s see that we come out on the winning side! Our Father works good through all things! Let’s seek to glean the good out of challenges and move on and not remain stagnant in the past! Believe in yourself and others to change for the better by learning and growing forward!
- Gotta be willing to sacrifice to make life happen well! I’m a gal going for that with ya, how about you?
We each have lots to offer the world around us to make a difference that can last for all of eternity when we set our minds on living life with eternity in mind!!!
Our Father says He will bless us forever for what we do for Him and His people!!! Through faith in Jesus, we all have salvation and a seat in our Father’s Kingdom, but what is done for Jesus will last with eternal reward and what is done for ourselves will vanish. He has not left us alone in the world, but as He promised, His Spirit lives in us to help us!!!!!!! Now how sweet is He to want to help us do life well!!! I sooo love my Father!!!
Oh, let’s not waste what we have been given by our Father, precious saints!!!!!!! Let’s go for the gusto – the best forever! Let’s maximize our potential to be all that we can be with the life given to us!!!!!!! Yeah, baby! We can do this – the one who has created us to conquer life fully is living in all our hearts through faith in Him!!! Excited about life? I am! Going 4 my Father and loving every minute!!! What’s noted on your day today for making a difference?
Oh, my Father, He has started a fire in my soul today with these thoughts and this song here! Have a divine day, you difference maker YOU!
I’m a gal stepping into life trusting in my Father’s sufficient grace to see me through life today, dear family of saints! I have always been a wanna do it all because all of life is oh so exciting and adventureous and I am also a wanna do it all perfectly type of gal because I desire my Father to be glorified through my efforts in life! One of the things that my Father has had to reveal to me is that I cannot do all, nor can I do things perfectly because my Father never intended that for me or you, precious one!
Our Father created us to be a needy body of believers that make up the church of Christ and He created us all to need His empowering grace to enable us to each do our part!!!!!!! Hence, where I lack and where you lack is where we need each other and others and the grace of Jesus! How unitedly divine and awesome is that!!!!!!! Where our Father’s grace gives you and me strengths, He works through us to help each other to carry out His will, His plans and His purposes in this world! Did I mention how divinely awesome that is, family!!!!!!! Together we can do great things and apart from all of us together and without the grace and wisdom of our Father, this is how our Father sums it up:
“I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man (gals, too) remains in me and I in him, he (she) will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
The Apostle Paul got this! He was very open to share his great zeal for life and his confessed limited wisdom which led him to encounter the Truth of Jesus and his need for other Christians in his life to help him successfully carry our Father’s will, plan and purpose for him into the world. He actually boasted about his weakness and his need for Christ, because he understood that it was in his weakness that the Lord was revealed in making him strong and successful in life. He believed God when he said:
“My grace is sufficient for you.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
It is by grace in all of life that we are saved so that nobody can boast! None of us can do life on our own, so when that devil dude seeks to convince us we are weak and incompetent, let’s just simply reply to him and say “Yep! That is how our Father intended it so that in our need for Him, we can have faith and trust and hope and sufficiency and yep, with Jesus, we’ve got it!” YEAH, BABY! WOOHOO! GO FOR IT JESUS IN US!!!
Jesus knows the plans that He has for each one of us and these are His plans for us:
“…to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Prayer to our Father for His wisdom and sufficient grace to enable us to do life is our greatest need for victory and sometimes in seeking that wisdom, He chooses to speak through others!
One way or another, He will provide us what we need when we seek Him first in life! I am sooo thankful for that! Our Father has said:
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord.”
“The eyes of the Lord roam throughout the earth to strengthen those who are fully committed to Him.”
2 Chronicles 16:9
I’m a gal fully committed to my need for the grace of Christ to enable me to do all of life. How about you? It is for our Father to receive all glory! To Him glory be!!! Here is a song for us to worship our royal King with today, along with a huge room full of people singing out to His glory and the great things that He has done! Let us give Him thanks for eyes to see our need for Him and for each other! While each of us are a holy temple of Christ living in us upon faith in Him as our Savior, none of us are the body of Christ as His whole church unto ourselves!
Hee, Hee, Hee!!! I’m a gal sooo thankful that He has not left us alone to figure out how to do life by ourselves! It sets the fact in concrete that we need to be in relationship with our all powerful, all wise, all loving Father and each other, just as He intended when He said in the Garden of Eden – it is not good for man to be alone!!!!!!! That would be true for all of us!!!!!!!
Much love to you all and I am sooo thankful for our Father and for each one of you!!!!!!! Let’s have a divine day in need of our Father!!! That’s a good thing! 🙂 Praying with ya’s!!!!!!!
I hope you have had a great weekend, family! Often times on a weekend, people work at cleaning up their house and preparing for the new week ahead. It is a good feeling to know you are stepping into a new week of life ready to go! Tonight, our Father has it on my heart to share with you that He has done His mighty work in each of our lives and we are each one a vessel cleansed and prepared for the most important matter at hand and that is being the vessel where His Holy Spirit dwells. Our relationship with Him is the most important priority in having a vessel ready to move into a new week with. Through our faith in Him, His Spirit enters our heart and cleanses our heart from all unrighteousness. He sees you as the perfect dwelling place for His Spirit to settle into – a holy place, without blemish, without accusation, without condemnation, fully acceptable as His place of presence to go through all of the week with you to teach you all things and remind you of what Jesus said – Truth! If you have invited Jesus in, you’ve got it, saint! You’ve got just what you need as priority to go through the new week victoriously!!! Yippee!!!
Build into your schedule quiet times to pray, study His Word this week and listen to His voice to guide you. Would you attempt to go through a whole week without physical food and beverage? I don’t think you would survive very well if you did. The same is true with our spiritual lives.
“Man does not live on bread alone, but on every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever.”
Oh, let’s do ourselves a favor and not shortchange ourselves this week from having the number one thing that will bring us victory in our week!!! That is closeness to our Father who loves us and is for us!!!
He says if we draw close to Him, He will draw in close to us. Oh, I want to be as close to my Father as I can possibly be! Here is a song that speaks of our need for Jesus every hour. Oh, sooo true!!! Seek the best in life everyday, saint – JESUS!!! Know you are loved!!!
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they will be filled.”
Do you ever have days when you get so busy in life that you forget to eat and drink in water? You are working along, going from one thing to the next and yer in a hurry to get lots done and eating and drinking in fluids takes stopping time to do so. But, everyone knows you can only do that occasionally or perhaps in times of fasting, as a lifestyle ongoing of not eating does not produce good health. Yikes! Just as it is important to being healthy physically to build in time to eat and drink, so it is true with taking in the spiritual food of our Father’s Word (the Bible) and drinking in of the living waters of His Spirit in us to hear His voice to each one of us personally. When we do, we are spiritually healthy and we have the divine mindset to do well in life. We reap what we sow, so sowing into ourselves by taking the time to take in of what is good in our lives for us is a good idea!!!! It should be a priority! I’m a gal seeking that priority with ya so I can putt down the road of life with the fuel I need to get me through my Father’s Kingdom territory here on earth to my eternal destiny of my Father’s Kingdom ahead!!!! Hmmm. I think I better take the time to check out my Father’s map quest for the journey as I am determined to get there the best way – the divine route! Now that thought inspires me and just makes me smile! Take care of you – seek Jesus!!!! Here’s a little music you can listen to to sing our Father some praise as you putt along the road before you today! Did you ever wonder what kind of car Jesus would drive? Here’s a thought:
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” I so agree with the Psalmist who shared this thought! Here are some reasons live here as to why having His Word (the Bible) blesses us as His kids.
Enjoy the presence of our Jesus with you today! We are blessed to have Him in all of life!!! Love to you all!
